Abstract

This paper describes case reports and pharmacokinetic information regarding the continuous intravenous administration of naloxone in treatment of narcotic overdose. Continuous naloxone infusion has been used successfully in acutely narcotized patients, and a review of the pharmacodynamic and pharmacokinetic properties of naloxone indicate the reasons for this mode of administration. Summaries of clinical studies in support of the infusion method are given. A naloxone protocol is outlined.
